Errordiary is about sharing errors so people can think about human error in a new way.
We already know that the same psychological principles lie behind everyday errors and those errors of a more serious nature. Whether they are funny, frustrating or fatal depends on the context.

Whatever context you find yourself in you can share your errors via Twitter using the hashtag #errordiary. You can also favourite and comment on the ones already displayed on this site. Reflecting on the errors we make may lead to insights, which can be used to develop a more detailed understanding of their causes.
We’re also developing Errordiary teaching materials for students on human-computer interaction and ergonomics courses.
